About the property

You are sure to enjoy the lake views and being able to walk to the lakeshore.

You'll love this clean and modern home with a lake view from every room and easy access to the north side of Canyon Lake. You'll thoroughly enjoy watching the deer and the beautiful sunsets from either the covered deck or downstairs covered patio. There's even a sitting area with a swing and benches closer to the lakeshore for your viewing pleasure. After the sun goes down, build a fire in one of the three fire pits that are spaced throughout the property or just gaze at the multitude of stars that dot the sky over Canyon Lake. There's plenty of outdoor seating both upstairs and downstairs for you to enjoy the night sky.

This home has an open floor plan with high ceilings in the main living area and glass all across the back wall to enhance your views. The kitchen, living area, and master bedroom are all on the top floor so you can enjoy this incredible view of Canyon Lake. You will also see good views of the lake from each of the two bedrooms downstairs.

The home has quality throughout with wood floors upstairs and stained concrete floors downstairs. There are beautiful granite countertops and custom cabinets in the kitchen as well as the bathrooms. All the living spaces are tastefully furnished with comfort in mind. A leather couch and love seat, 2 recliners and 2 large bean bag chairs in the living room provide ample seating for everyone to visit and watch TV. The dining table in the eating area with seating for eight is large enough for everyone to dine together or play dominoes, cards and other board games you will find in the home. There are 4 TV's in the house - one in each of the 3 bedrooms and the 55 inch flat screen TV in the living room. The home is equipped with WIFI.

The roomy master bedroom has a king size bed and a sitting area with a daybed. There's also enough space to set up the rollaway bed so that you can have your young children sleeping in close proximity if that's what you desire. The large master bathroom has a bathtub, a separate shower, a double vanity with a granite countertop, a linen closet and a large walk-in closet.

Downstairs there are two bedrooms with views, a bathroom with a tub/shower combination and a utility room with a full size washer and dryer for your convenience. One bedroom has a king size bed and a PAC-N-PLAY for a small child. The second bedroom has a double bed.

The well-appointed kitchen has a pantry and stainless steel appliances. In addition to the paper towels, soaps, coffee, spices and other staples that are provided, the kitchen is stocked with all the pots and pans, utensils and dishes you need to make you feel like you are cooking a meal in your very own home.

For your grilling pleasure, you can cook with gas, wood or charcoal. The home has a gas grill outside on the covered upper deck. By the downstairs back patio there's a fire pit with a grilling surface and also a separate charcoal park grill just like you would find at a state or national park. Then you can eat your meal right there at the picnic table in the covered open air cabana. You'll have the best of both worlds - enjoying a camp out experience with the conveniences of a dishwasher, clean bathrooms and comfortable beds!

You will need to stay a week if you want to do all the fun stuff that is close by. Be sure to allow at least one day for boating on Canyon Lake. Our property is .6 of a mile from public boat ramp # 23 which is free. So bring your boat if you have one or rent one from the marina that is a few miles away. In addition to boating, swimming, skiing, tubing and fishing at Canyon Lake you may also want to tube or kayak down the Guadalupe River which is about 20 minutes away. The Canyon Lake Gorge geological tour is a very interesting and informative hike. Be aware that you do need to make a reservation for it. If a hike doesn't appeal to you, the walk across Canyon Lake Dam is an easy walk and beautiful. See a concert at Gruene Hall or WhiteWater Amphitheater - which is one of the best outdoor venues in Texas. Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels is a MUST - especially if you have children. Gruene, Blanco and Wimberley are picturesque towns within a short drive that are fun places to shop, eat and listen to live bands playing all kinds of music. And the unique San Antonio River Walk is just a short conversation away. The hill country of Texas is hard to beat if you want to vacation in a beautiful and fun locale with a good variety of things to do. Come check us out! You won't be sorry.

Why Janette & John Hall chose Canyon Lake

My husband and I decided to buy something special with money we inherited after my parents died. We wanted to find something close to our home which is in the Kyle - Buda area. We started our search around Canyon Lake since we've always liked the area and it's only a 45 minute scenic drive from our home. When we found this brand new home right on the lake we fell in love with it and couldn't believe how lucky we were to find this perfect place for us. It is truly our happy place and we enjoy sharing it with our family, friends and guests.

Beautiful, clean home, & attentive hosts

  • 5 of 5

Janette & John's house is clean, comfortable, and relaxing! I rented their home for a weekend getaway with my husband and two small children. The house had plenty of space and had all the amenities you need including a pack and play which helped lighten our packing! The views from the house are beautiful and it was nice to have my morning tea looking out over the lake. My 2 yr old's favorite part was the deer corn; he loved tossing out the corn and watching the deer come to snack! Janette and John were also incredibly attentive and responded to our inquiries about the house quickly. They were fantastic hosts and went above our expectations. I am definitely looking forward to renting their house again in the future!

We had a wonderful time at this VRBO, the house was spotless and the owners have taken great care to make the house comfortable. We loved feeding the deer, the lake was amazing and the house had everything we could possibly need! This home is definitely on our must return to list!! They went over and above to make sure we had everything we needed including suggestions of where to find things to do. Great Home!

Perfect home away from home! Beautiful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to make some lasting memories. We have had several rentals from VRBO and this was the best. Janette was responsive to all our questions and made sure all our needs were met in their home. Thanks again for a wonderful and memorable weekend. Hope to visit again soon. Joye and Tony Sanchez

Beautiful house with a beautiful view!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are so nice! They were able to accommodate our needs. The house has everything you need for a wonderful stay. There were so many deer, which made the view so much better! You could even feed them!

This house is great for a family as well. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants to stay at Canyon Lake.

The home owners have thought of everything! View amazing, super clean, and great for 2 families.

  • 5 of 5

This property was kinda further to the water than thought , but being able to drive to the second swing helped tons!! Fishing was slow but the water was amazing. Kayaking was great. We cooked all our meals at the rental, inside and out. Helps with large familys that love to cook!!!!!The kids loved the deer everywhere all day nearly. Great parks to visit everywhere for breath taking adventures. Wimberley GlassWorks will blow your mind along with the best glass blowing show for free!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is my only complaint..... the corn hole game needs new tops for better use.

Love this home!!!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased that the house provided good accommodations for you and your sister's families to get together and have an enjoyable experience at Canyon Lake. Unfortunately, the lake keeps getting lower so it's a longer walk to the lake. I'm glad that even though the lake is low, y'all were still able to have some water fun. Redoing the bean bag toss will be on my husbands "honey do" list. Thanks for letting us know it needs to be refinished. I appreciate all of your positive feedback and hope you'll consider visiting our home again.
